Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
405 AM CDT Fri Oct 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure at the surface and aloft will continue to dominate
the area into the early portion of the weekend. A few showers and
earlier some thunderstorms currently moving across E Texas with a
weakening short wave. This will provide for considerable cloud
cover across the area today. Showers and thunderstorms will
continue to weaken as they try to move across the western portions
of the area today. Still cant rule out measurable rainfall over
Southeast Texas.

Low pressure still forecast to develop in the lee of the Rockies
Saturday as a potent trough moves across the western US. This will
induce increasing moisture levels throughout the column. As the
features continue to move east, a cold front will move into the
region Saturday night and through the area Sunday. Instability and
shear parameters still indicate a potential for a few strong
storms Sunday.

Cooler airmass will follow in the wake of the front, however even
cooler airmass will come in the wake of a secondary dry front on
Tuesday with dry weather forecast for the remainder of next work
week.
